this hour. president obama continues to warn the nation about upcoming spending cuts that could go into effect march 1st. in his weekly address to the nation he blamed republicans for the crisis. >> these cuts don't have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little compromise. unfortunately, it appears that republicans in congress have decided that instead of compromising, instead of asking anything of the wealthiest americans, they'd rather let these cuts fall squarely on the middle class. >> republican senator john hoven of north dakota delivered the weekly address and said congress has done its part. >> house republicans have already passed two bills to replace the president's sequester. so the question is why won't he work with with us? and the answer, quite simply, is because he wants higher taxes. >> republican governors meeting today in washington are asking the federal government to solve the spending crisis and not to add to the burden on the states. >> don't pass the balancing the federal budget on the backs of state governments because we're still re

promises that we can't keep, but we must keep the promises we've lard made. [applause] >> obama: to hit the rest of our testify sit-reduction target we should to what leaders in both parties have already suggested. and save hundreds of billions of dollars by getting rid of tax loopholes and tax deductions for the well-connected. after all why would we choose to make deeper cuts to medicare just for tax breaks. how is that fair? deficit reduction is a big emergency justifying making cuts in social security benefits but not closing some loopholes. how does that promote growth? [applause] now is our best chance. for bipartisan comprehensive tax reform that encourages job creation and helps bring town the testify sit. --the deficit. [applause] we can get this done. the american people deserve a tax code that helps small businesses spend less time filling out complicateed forms and more time expanding and hiring. a tax code that lowers incentive incentives to move jobs overseas and lowers tax rates for businesses and manufacturers who are creating jobs right here in america. that's what tax

hamp, or sometimes they say the obama plan. they will say i am an expert. or they may say they are affiliated with the program. they take people's money and a skip town. what we do is we kept them, we put handcuffs on them, and we put them in jail and make them stand trial and a for their crimes. these people are being convicted and going to jail. this is an unscrupulous, to have a crime that is targeting people who are struggling during this financial crisis. we get calls related to those. we are trying to educate homeowners about that so they did not become victims in the first place. but a lot of people will lose their homes of the situation. host: christy romero, special inspector general for tarp. the question about the teeth -- question of to this executive pay, if treasury signed off on it, what can sigtarp really do? guest: we make recommendations to treasury and a half to be dealt with. we also report to congress. we send these reports to congress and congress helps put teeth in it. but a ultimately we have a lot of recommendations that are not implemented and the
. and you have liberals running around saying oh, you know what? actually, obama's spending less money than any president since dwight eisenhower, which maybe they convinced themselves of this just like right-wing radicals convinced themselves of all the things that have led them to defeat over the past several presidential elections. when nancy pelosi says we don't have a spending problem, americans say, she's out of touch. when nancy pelosi says the problem with medicare is not medicare, americans say, she's out of touch. when barack obama says you know what? we're going to fix this by raising taxes yet again, barack obama and nancy pelosi and the democratic party are out of touch. now, listen. i've been spending the past four years saying the republican party is out of touch, and they're going to lose the presidential election because of it. and i was right. republicans. now, let me say to democrats. you're out of touch. you've got a spending problem. medicare is a problem. and if you go back to the well again and raise taxes again, if that's your answer, your answer's always raising tax
. if they are brought to claim it, they need to claim it quick. on january 13 of this year, president obama signed into law the 2013 intelligence authorization act which requires notification of any disclosure of national intelligence. we have not received any notification of authorized disclosures. have there been any authorized disclosures, to your knowledge? >> since you have not received any notification, there have not been. >> would you consider the information reported about the cameras and playback an authorized disclosure? >> i do not know which piece you're talking about. there has much discussion in the media and in the newspapers about this. i do not know specifically about any classified information. the fact that the administration may be going through a process to institutionalize our processes and procedures in an of itself is not a classified issue. those details that are classified, i do not know of any that came out in some of those reports. >> if there is classified information that is out there, and it was not authorized, was there a crime report filed relative to the play boo
to occur. president obama has submitted proposals on three different occasions. a balanced approach. when the supercommittee was meeting back in the fall of 2011 and his own budget submission and last fall as part of the fiscal debate challenges, he's put office on the table to the congressional republicans who simply refuse to close corporate loopholes and to force the wealthiest americans to pay their fair share. we've had over $2.5 trillion in savings and cuts. we cannot cut our way to prosperity. we need a balanced approach and that's what the president has told the republicans. >> when she says balanced approach, alex, she means more taxes, higher taxes for wealthy americans and for big corporations. what's wrong with that? >> close loopholes. >> what's wrong with that is that washington is telling us that if we cut a single penny, then the national parks are going to close, as if the grand canyon was going to stop being a hole in the ground without federal funding. this is outrageous. the people who are supposed to serve us are telling us they can't do with a penny less, while ameri
secretary of defense. his record of service to this country is untarnished. 12 days later president obama's support for his qualified nominee is still strong. 12 days later the majority of senators still support his confirmation. senate republicans have delayed for the better part of two weeks for one reason: partisanship. at a time when our nation faces threats abroad -- and that's an understatement -- there is a fair and constructive confirmation process. politically motivated delays send a terrible signal to our allies around the world and they send a terrible signal to tens of thousands of americans serving in afghanistan, other parts of the world and people serving in the united states. for the sake of national security it is time to set aside partisanship. the three days across-the-board cuts to defense spending are scheduled to take effect. the pentagon needs a seasoned leader to diplomat these cuts, cuts for which an overwhelmingly majority of republicans in congress voted. the so-called sequester, mr. president, was supported by 174 republicans in the house of representatives, 28
, not try to shrink some pieces of the pie and enlarge others. and i've never been clear on how mr. obama sees the economy and whether he winunderstands that. if you're going to take away from some in order to give to others, i don't think that will be effective or received very well outside his base. >> a year ago it was the buffet rule. it was warren buffett's secretary in the first lady's box this year it's going to be the likes of a tim cook bringing mcintosh production back to the states. do you think we've edged off of that class warfare a about bit? >> i don't know. i want to hear what the president has to say. i have heard different things but have not read the speech. if he wants to go protectionist, for example, i think that will be poorly received, frankly, again, outside of his own union base and so forth. the tim cook thing is fascinating. i get that. if you bring manufacturing facilities home, that would be great. cut the corporate tax rate that would give them an incentive. regulate less that would give them an incentive to come home. >> certainly he will talk about incenti
to challenge president obama. he is on the national stage. he has been on the national stage before. got very good reviews of a speech he delivered at the republican national convention in august in tampa. so the expectation here is fairly high for marco rubio as someone who is seen, because of his background, because of his makeup, because of his energy, because of the places that in politics have taken him thus far and he is only in his early 40s, that this is someone who is here to shine for republicans. who will be the standard-bearer of the party going forward. so the stakes are certainly high especially since republicans failed to recapture the white house in the past election. neil: gentlemen, thank you very much. we're just waiting now the sergeant-at-arms to introduce the president of the united states. there's a procedure for this. we got advance copy of some of the president's remarks. his speech should be about an hour. that is not factoring in applause. with applause it could go back to 61, 62 minutes. the president averages anywhere from 60 applause interruptions to in, 2010, 86
this accomplished than he is harming the republican party. >> senator mccain, have you talked to president obama about this issue? >> i have not. >> what are the state of relations these days? >> i, i have great respect for the president. i hope and i believe that at some point we will all be meeting with the president on this issue because we need to coordinate with the administration. but, i think, i haven't seen a degree of partisanship overall as there is today but we are showing some signs of bipartisanship. this thing we just did in averting the nuclear option in the senate, this issue, i think that republicans are more inclined to let the process go forward and senator reid is more, more inclined to let us have amendments. i see, i think that when we are down to 11% approval rating, there was a favorability thing, different things are favorable. a colonostomy is viewed more favorably than a member of congress. we're kind of in bad shape to say the least. i won't view that line any further. i got up in line, anybody said in the airport anybody say you look a lot like senator john mccain. i
president obama did his speech, i did a text analysis and they were quite analysis. >> he also offended some jews because of the rehabilitation of one of the holocaust denying roman catholics. let's talk a little bit about the contrast of this incredible pomp, the circumstance, the formality of the vatican and what we were talking about cardinal tagle of the philippines, we were talking about how he was a young and prominent cardinal and a bishop of the people who brings the poor and destitute into his area to have dinner and chat. >> before he went to the philippines, cardinal tagle was the bishop of a smaller diocese. the cathedral was in the main town square and people who were out of work and so forth were famous for sleeping in that area. a story has been told, a woman who had a chronic alcoholic for a husband who would sleep it off. the reason she couldn't find him, the bishop, tagle came out and invited him in for lunch. he was famous for riding his bike in his diocese or taking the bus, that kind of thing. it's that common touch that people find attractive. >> many of us who grew up
president obama weighed in urging the group to open its membership to everyone. he agrees. >> the boy scouts are unwilling to lift the ban they simply won't be relevant to a generation that decided to embrace lbgt brothers sisters, coworkers neighbors, friends. >> for now the ban remains in place. scout leaders say they need more time to consider and consult before deciding to whether to everyturn a century old policy. al-jazeera washington. >> that is an except from al-jazeera english, one. news programs that airs on that channel. bob wheelock, what is the lens or voice that your journalists approach their stories with? >> it is not any different from any other broadcaster i don't think. you look for the truth. you look to tell the story for the people and to give them a voice. we will go out and try to find central characters often, to drive a story, to try to give it, you know, something that you can invest in as a viewer. but, you know, essentially on a story like that it is a news story of the day. it is fairly cut and dried. we make a great effort getting all voices in. and then try to
. memorials were erected to the 26 victims. president obama read out 26 names. but there was a 27th person murdered that day-- the gunman's mother, nancy lanza. >> nancy lanza is the person adam was closest to in the world. she was the first person he killed. he shot her four times in the head while she was in bed, and then he went off to sandy hook elementary school. if we can begin to understand adam's relationship with nancy, we probably can begin to understand adam. >> one of the things that josh and i talked about early on when we were given this assignment is the fact that it didn't seem like nancy was ever really mentioned as a victim in this case. we had heard a lot of different things about her through other news outlets. we weren't even sure if they were true. we come to find out later that some of them weren't. >> we knew there was some diagnosis, some... deficit, some social deficiency, and how that complicated their relationship and what it took to bring this kid along, and some... to some degree what happened, those were our marching orders. >> there are going to be many obst
, president obama speaks publicly about the case for the first time. >> if i had a son, he would look like trayvon. >> reporter: march 4th, a group call the new black panther party offers a $10,000 reward for zimmerman's "capture." trayvon martin rallies held across the country demanding zimmerman's arrest. april 11th, zimmerman charged with second degree murder and turns himself in. bond set at $150,000 and three days later, he walks out of jail in the middle night of, only to return six weeks later when a judge revokes his bond after prosecutors say zimmerman and his wife lied about being poor at his bond hearing, failing to mention hundreds of thousands of donated dollars from supporters, this time zimmerman's wife is also arrested, charged with perjury. july 6th. zimmerman's release from jail again, now on $1 million bond and goes into hiding. zimmerman appears on fox news. >> anything you might do differently in retrospect now that time has passed a little bit? >>> no, sir. >> reporter: his defense team lobbies successfully to have the judge in his case replaced. justice for trayvon m
to be here on stage with him. and of course, we are at the beginning of the second term for president obama and our great leader, tom vilsack has an opportunity to share with us visions for were going in the second term. it seems like a sequester come to sequester come to sequester and that certainly does weigh heavily on our shoulders, but nevertheless come were applied rumor going to do some incredibly great things in the second turned and i'm sure he's very excited to share that with you. i also want to recognize that we have a lot of young people in the audience from the outlook forum student diversity program, now in its seventh year. 20 undergraduates and for the first time, 10 graduate students are here to gain insights into food monoculture. so be sure to seek them out during the breaks. congratulate them for being here, mentor them over the course of a couple of days. that would be great. i know how these people are because i have an alumnus of this program who works in my office and these are the people who are going to beat american agriculture in the future. many thanks to our p
in the obama administration of threatening him over his reporting on the massive budget cuts about to go into effect tomorrow. abc's jon karl joins us, now, from the white house. what's going on here, jon? good morning. >> reporter: well, robin, what's happening here is the white house suddenly finds myself in a war of words with the most famous investigative reporter in america. legendary "washington post" reporter, bob woodward, is accusing the white house of threatening him. >> and it makes me very uncomfortable to have the white house telling reporters, you're going to regret doing something that you believe in. >> reporter: woodward isn't just any reporter. he's the one portrayed along with carl bernstein, in the movie "all the president's men" as taking down richard nixon. now, he's accusing the obama white house of being dishonest about the president's responsibility for those automatic spending cuts set to go into effect tomorrow. first, woodward reported that the cuts were the president's idea. then, he said the white house was trying to change the agreement by asking for tax in
